Hartmann's Mountain Zebra, Etosha National Park, Namibia


This photo was taken in Etosha National Park, Namibia, and does show Mountain Zebras, a threatened species of zebra native to south-western Angola, Namibia and South Africa. It has two subspecies, the Cape Mountain Zebra and Hartmann's Mountain Zebra, though it has been suggested these should be considered separate species. Like all zebras, it is boldly striped in black and white and no two individuals look exactly alike. The stripe can be black and white or dark brown and white.

They are gorgeous creatures and I think it would be difficult to tell them apart. Great shot.
